In conjunction with Goulburn Our Living History Festival and NSW State Archives

Have you ever wanted to go back in time and find out more about the history of your house and the area where you live? This seminar will discuss how to search for your property’s previous owners, learn about what it might have looked like inside and outside, and suggest strategies for discovering more about the history of your locality.

Ticket price includes lunch and a tour of the historic Riversdale house and gardens, ‘a fine example of a Colonial Georgian home‘.

Speakers/Topics:

  • “Residential genealogy” links people and places throughout history, encompassing the genealogy of a particular house or research to find out where a person lived. Christine Yeats will discuss search strategies using the new Historical Land Records Viewer (HLRV) website to help you “hear your house talk”.
  • Researching the history of your house and property can be confusing but very rewarding. Emily Hanna of NSW State Archives will be speaking about records in the State Archives Collection that can help you undertake historical house and property research.
  • Fran O’Flynn, Local Studies Librarian, Goulburn-Mulwaree Council Library, will provide a session on the local resources you can use for researching the history of your house.
